The cabin we stayed at is priced at $80 per night but it isn't value at that price, about all you can do here is rest for the night. the ablution block was pretty good, but then I possibly look for different things than most when I consider my likes, it had a shower with a dry shelf and hooks, a washbasin that made for a comfortable shave, and a lavatory that was clean and flushed, all good by me but lacking was a urinal, so a minus for that.
A dreary day.
I ordered a four genuine Chinese Kinforest KF550 tyres online from Tyroola to be fitted at Minchinbury and the whole deal was splendid, the tyre fitter who I wish I had asked the name of was a champion bloke and already I feel these tyres are way superior to the Goodyear Ducaro that was fitted as OEM, although I've yet to drive on a wet road, waiting, waiting.
I was pleased the fitter shares my opinion about tyre pressures, he also pumps his way above recommendations, I keep mine above 300 kPa which I heard on the grapevine a while back is a very sound thing to do.
AU$244 for four tyres fitted that in the dry at least grip very well, steer beautifully, seem more comfortable and quiet than the old ones, and look set to last longer, I'm happy.
For those curious I bought them online from www.tyroola.com.au And my experience was a very happy one, I did however travel a long way to avoid the onerous in Australia freight cost, something that isn't really the fault of most traders. I'm still waiting for some wet roads but the dry grip of these Kinforest KF550 is more than good enough for this old man.
I'll pore over our trip photos and post a selection when I sort them out.
Olivia should also see Sydney this trip, something that has been on her bucket list of places to see.
It's a bit wobbly so here I'm fitting a brace I made from a bit of scrap.
Already I see an issue, it's going to sag with only 4 casters fitted, I shall have to mount a fifth centre one.
Really I'm glad I had it done as it did annoy me fairly frequently, he didn't listen to me when I asked him not to bother sending the flesh away for testing as I considered it pointless, but he sent it and it naturally came back positive for the cancer he sought, but since he'd already chopped it out it was a pointless waste of taxpayer money. It's hard to change habits.
I also notice that I haven't clipped the under dash panel back in properly after the last time I had it out.
For those who haven't got it, Daisy is a white car and I've chosen to add yellow highlights, hence Daisy. White is such an ordinary colour (although a quantum leap ahead of the hordes of grey/silver ones that abound on our roads) that it needs a touch of colour added to it to brighten it up.
